Entering my 16th year of teaching (all at JM), my excitement levels are just as high as they were on my first day of teaching. In those days, I had just completed my Master's degree and Teaching Credential at U.C. Berkeley. Since that time I have worked hard to make math fun, engaging, and challenging. I have also made a point to give students the opportunity to see other important aspects of life by coordinating field trips to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, a variety of theater shows in San Francisco, and multiple volunteer opportunities, from Glide Memorial Church to programs at Cambridge Elementary School. I believe that a lot of learning can take place in a wide variety of places. I look forward to another wonderful year!
